Witton-le-Wear is a beautiful village just off the A68 between Crook and Hamsterley Forest. Less than 5 miles from Bishop Aukland and just over 10 miles from Durham.
For anyone who is interested in further development through these principles and techniques, my intention is to follow up this introductory workshop with ongoing classes in the village.
I want to learn from local people what you would like to see covered and when are the best days and times for you to attend.
Please come along if you can or feel free to get in touch for more information.
Please reserve your place
Climate change is the big survival issue of our time. Increasingly, it seems that governments are not doing enough. This can evoke a whole host of emotions within us. So what can we do as individuals to respond to those feelings in a healthy way and what can we do to help regenerate the planet and counter climate change?
Leading from a Franciscan and Shamanic perspective, Victoria Clark and Fran Pilgrim will explore with you what we as individuals, families and local communities can do for our own wellbeing and the wellbeing of our planet. Rooted in the ethics of People Care, Earth Care and Fair Shares.
When children are campaigning for a planet for their future and the systems in place are not responding effectively, we need to explore grass roots responses to create change. Starting with ourselves, we can cultivate a happier and more sustainable way of living, that will bring powerful and positive changes to the world!
In our current climate of challenges and conflict between faiths, Fran and Victoria are taking this opportunity to demonstrate that regardless of faith or non faith, we are all connected. When we can see beyond our own beliefs and practices to that which unites us, as well as celebrate that which makes us different, we become stronger together.
